Happy Holidays

I hope you all had a great Christmas with friends and family. We stayed home with just the 3 of us. Nice and quiet. The boys did go ride their horses for a while, while mom napped. :0

I saw  a lot of customers buy furniture for themselves for Christmas this year? How about you? Did any of you purchase new furniture or appliances?

Check out for insurance on your new appliances. Or check out their YouTube –

We didn’t purchase furniture or appliances for Christmas this year, but I did let a customer talk me into purchasing a cabinet at the store. I had been looking at for a while, but you know the old problem, where am I going to put it? And why do I really need it? Well she mentioned that it would be adorable with antique quilts displayed in it as it has glass doors. She was right, and yes I put it on layaway.

It will be coming home with me after the first of the month. I am excited, and can hardly wait to share a picture of my new cabinet with my antique quilts. AWESOME!

Have a great day!

Home Warranty & Peace of Mind

I was talking to a customer yesterday about the housing market in Lafayette. She said that they are wanting to move to the Old Town area, but when they find a house they have to make a very hasty decision to purchase – meaning that there is a shortage of houses on the market for sale, and they are selling fast.

One way to make a home purchase decision a little easier is choosing Choice Home Warranty to purchase coverage for your home appliances from heating units, electrical, plumbing, and more.

For more info on Choice Home Warranty check out their FAQ’s –

Choice Home Warranty can also be found on CrunchBase, Facebook & twitter!

Have a great day!

How To Show Your Thankfulness

Photobucket This is the perfect time of year to show your thankfulness and gratitude to the important people in your life.

For some people, displaying emotions and feelings is difficult. Here are some tips to help you show your thankfulness:

Flowers – A classic showing of appreciation, sending someone a bouquet of flowers is a great way to say “thanks.” A handwritten note is the perfect way to complement this

Donate To Charity – Find out the favorite charity of the person you would like to thank and make a donation in their name. Or better yet, volunteer a few hours of your time to the cause.

Favor Certificates – Kind of like a gift certificate, a favor certificate is a bit more personal and from the heart. Using your home computer, you can get very creative with these and make them valuable for anything the person you would like to thank might need.

For example, a favor certificate could be worth a day of babysitting or a few hours of yard work. Use your imagination and create the perfect one for your loved one.

A Treat That’s All Their Own – Show your gratitude by buying your loved one something that they can enjoy all on their own. A busy woman would certainly enjoy a manicure or pedicure. Think about what your loved one would enjoy, but wouldn’t buy for themselves, and treat them.


Here are some adorable FREE Birthday Fonts, and there is even a tutorial to teach you how to download, and save to your computer.
